Notes and Editorial Reviews

The finest Estampes and Images on disc were recorded more than 20 years ago by Paul Jacobs (still available on Nonesuch). Jacobs was unbelievably sensitive to nuance, with lightning nervous responses. ...Jacobs could drive you mad with his subtlety... Jacobs remains indispensable.

-- BBC Music Magazine


Paul Jacobs brings to life the four most important piano works from the first half of Debussy’s career, including three Images, the composer’s earliest works for solo piano. Gramophone described the performances as “imaginative” and “extremely beautiful.”
